Schubert: Complete String Quartets
Including 7 discs, this exhaustive set contains the complete string quartets by Franz Schubert, including two unfinished movements which have been completed for this release by Christian Starke.; Schubert composed his string quartets throughout his entire life. His earlier pieces radiate the classical Viennese style, where as the later quartets are much more dramatic, romantic, and full of Weltschmerz.; Performing these works is The German Diogenes Quartet. The ensemble has been exploring Schubert’s quartets more deeply for the last few years. Producer Christian Starke has provided outstanding liner notes for this release.
